Transcribed for B♭ Clarinet by C. A. Vater (originally for violin)
Part for B♭ Clarinet, PDF $6.97
Czech composer Antonín Dvořák based his Romance, Opus 11 on the slow movement of his String Quartet in F minor, composed in 1873, re-working that Andante con moto quasi allegretto to create two versions of the Romance, one for solo violin and orchestra (B.39) and another for solo violin and piano (B.38). The Romance is one of Dvořák’s most magnificent melodic works, teaming with romance, lyricism, and emotional intensity. Understandably, the piece became extremely popular and has been transcribed for several other instruments, including viola, cello, guitar, and flute. In creating an NSM edition of the work for clarinet (and piano), we have incorporated several changes in the solo part to account for sonic differences between the clarinet and the violin. In so doing, every effort has been made to maintain the spirit, character, and flow of Dvořák’s original composition. We provide here our transcribed B♭ clarinet part only; the score for violin and piano is readily available in the public domain as a free pdf download from imslp.org, and that piano part can be used in performance along with our clarinet part.
